I'm Nick, a complete beginner to astronomy located near Reading.

I'll pop along to the local reading club meets in the new year before buying a scope, but for now I'm busy reading up.

Principally interested in imaging DSOs so I get the feeling I'll be buying a Vixen VC200L.

Something I may be able to bring to the forum is my experience of software, embedded devices and computer vision (I helped put together a stereoscopic rover with omnivision cameras using dual Blackfin microcontrollers). I have over 14 years of developing software (Assembler/C/C++/Objective-C). So I'll probably frequent the DIY section. Also interested in developing an idea for a tracking mount using a blackfin to provide optic flow processing :)

So I look forward to some banter!
